What the media falsely reported:
What are the facts:
The mainstream extremist Hindu terrorist militant groups with single targeted mission to decimate Sanatana Hindu Dharma (Hinduism) and completely destroy the Guru- Shishya parampara (Guru- Disciple heritage) and all who work to revive and promote it telecast sensational news relating to the death of a Monk – Sangeetha Arjunan at the Bengaluru Aadheenam of His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda.
Using such fatal lies to create doctored content, rumors and false news for inciting hatred in masses towards an individual. Paramahamsa Nithyananda is being tried to succumb to such sinister attacks by main stream media.
28 Dec 2014:
Ms Sangeetha Arjunan (aka Ma Nithya Turiyateetananda), a Sanyasi at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam passed away on 28 December 2014 due to sudden cardiac arrest.
Her family had a history of cardiac problems leading to death at a young age. Her sister and cousin also had died at a young age due to cardiac problems. One of her cousins had died of cardiac arrest just one day before Ms Sangeetha.
Despite hospital reports confirming Ms Sangeetha’s natural death as due to cardiac arrest, and despite knowing her family’s history of heart problems and history of early deaths due to it, vested interest media groups tried making the unfortunate and sensitive happening into an insensitive sensational piece of ‘news’ for their own TRP ratings.
Why were the television channels, especially Suvarna TV so instigated against Paramahamsa Nithyananda? And by who?

Transcript of Video:
Statement by Ma Shantananda Swami, a fellow sanyasini of Ma Sangeetha. Ma Sangeetha was a co-sanyasi living with us in the ashram for the past 4 years. A few days back as we were working in the welcome center. Ma Sangeetha had a heart attack and collapsed. Fortunately we had Ma Sita Deepak amongst us, one of the best doctors, she was the one who gave her continuous medical support. We immediately rushed her to the Rajarajeshwari Hospital in the ambulance. As soon as we took her to the hospital, doctors there told us that her condition was critical and that they dont have beds in their ICU so advised us to shift her to BGS Hospital immediately. When we took her to BGS, the doctors in emergency unit tried hard but nothing could be done. We immediately informed this to her parents. As soon as her mother arrived at the hospital, following all the required legal procedures the body was handed over to the police by the hospital authorities. Later we got to know that Ma Sangeetha has a family history of heart issues. We were also aware of the fact her elder sister also passed away because of a heart problem. Her mother was sharing that one of Ma Sangeethas’ cousin brothers also passed away with a similar heart issue. This is a very sad happening for the family.
5) Statement of Dr. Sita Deepak, doctor who gave medical support to Ms. Sangeeta
Transcript of Video :
I am Dr Sita Deepak, Medical Practitioner with a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynecology practicing for last 27 years. I have taken up sanyas for over a year now at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam. And this is with regard to the demise of Sangeeta. That evening, I was in the same room as her only. I was suddenly called to attend to her. She had suddenly fallen. As I went there it she needed to be given the first aid measure. What was needed at that time was a cardiac massage. I had given her the cardiac massage and called for an ambulance. We have our support in the ambulance with the oxygen and ventilator. We took her immediately to closest big hospital which is Raja Rajeshwari. As there were no ICU beds available at that time and the condition was critical, we rushed her to next big hospital which was BGS Hospital, Uttarahalli. We tried all the measures we could do ,unfortunately, we could not help her at that time. On inquiring, it was found out that she has a very strong history of family cardiac problem and her elder sister has also passed away at a young age two years ago and so has her cousin brother, who passed away two days prior to her demise. So we are thinking it as a congenital cardiac problem. After this body was handed over to police and then to parents after completing all procedural paper work.
6) Sangeeta’s mothers statement – ‘Sri Nithyananda Swami saved my life’
How I see Swamiji…I’m only seeing Him as my mother, my father and my God. This is because I was in a deep depression when I lost my child. When my child died, I went into depression and took lots of pills, so my heart and my kidney failed. I got more depressed with lots of worries.
Even doctor said you’ll survive only for the next 6 months. Even with surgery, you can survive only for 6 months. And I was under medications.
That time I received news about Swamiji. So I went to Madras for NSP in 2006. While entering the hall for the program, Swamiji came in front of me. The moment I saw Him, Swamiji looked at me for only one second, that immediate moment I decided that He is my God. After that immediately, I dumped all the medicines into thrash. I didn’t need any tablets anymore. After the 4 days class, he dissolved all my health issues and transformed me into a new being and sent me out to the world. The doctor has told me that I should not lift weight. But I thought, whatever happens to me, my mother, father (Swamiji) will take care of me, with this context only I’ll start my volunteering at Anna Mandir(kitchen). I’m lifting all kinds of weight. I have not done any medical test since then. I’m challenging the doctor who told me I’ll only survive for the next 6 months, I’m alive for over 7 years now. Because everything I’m given is because of His compassion, I’m indebted to Him. Till my last breath, I’ll be doing His seva(volunteering). I’m prepared to do anything.
